Nintendo 3DS owners will be able to enjoy online gaming at a much wider range of locations thanks to a new agreement between Nintendo and free-hotspot.com.
The gaming giant has struck a deal with the free wi-fi network provider to allow 3DS users to automatically connect their console to more than 5,000 hotspots across 21 European nations.
It means gamers will be able to easily browse the web on the 3DS systems at fast food restaurants such as McDonald's, Burger King, KFC and Subway, as well as at a number of leading hotel chains.
Doing so provides users with access to a wide range of online content, including downloadable software from the Nintendo eShop or 3D videos via the free Nintendo Video app.
Nintendo's Laurent Fischer said: "The access points are largely located in popular restaurants and hotels - places where Nintendo 3DS owners are likely to want to unwind in."
Having also recently agreed a separate connectivity deal with Boingo Wireless covering many leading UK airports, Nintendo is ensuring it has never been easier to take their 3DS consoles online.
